Winners announced for free software gaming's highest honor, the Liberated Pixel Cup

by Libby Reinish Contributions Published on Feb 22, 2013 11:50 AM
We're proud to announce the completion of the first LPC, a design competition of free software video games using only freely licensed art and media. The winner is Lurking Patrol Comrades, which, according to judges, is an "impressive MMORPG with a vast world, plenty of characters to speak to [and] both a melee and a magic based battle system."

The LPC was sponsored by the FSF, Mozilla, Creative Commons and OpenGameArt. Thank you to the donors who gave to the FSF to support this effort! The competition attracted a lot of attention in the free software community, and in fact there were so many submissions that the announcement of winners had to be postponed because judging took so long.

The prize-winning games have just been announced here. The winners of the earlier art-only phase of the competition are here.

And that's the end of the first Liberated Pixel Cup! We'd like to say thank you to everyone who put their passion for free software gaming into art, development and judging. We look forward to seeing further development on these games and, hopefully, more LPCs ahead!
